“Music videos are like tools that young artists use to earn respect from their peers, to represent.”

 – Jamie Adenuga – British Songwriter and Record Producer

We all grew up listening to songs of different genres and enjoying their music videos. Some music videos are aesthetic, picturesque, and majestic, while others are bold and seductive. Music videos play an imperative role in the popularity and leverage of the musical piece. It helps in creating a memorable visual experience for the viewer and paves the path for an artist to articulate their emotions and thought process while creating the songs. Music videos enhance the likeability and impact of the songs and make them more enjoyable.

Music videos formulate a large part of an artist’s general creative vision and output, opening the world to new possibilities and allowing artists to see their music videos in incredible, sometimes unexpected, ways. While numerous videos have surfaced in the musical realm, caricature is one of them. Cute videos with attractive characters entice a vast range of audiences because everyone is used to liking cartoons and animations as a child; therefore, these endearing videos compel people to be lost in their own beautiful childhood memory lane. The Silvers have been creating melodious rock pop/rock songs with cartoony videos.

The Silvers have featured cartoons and animated videos since the band’s establishment. This unique way to sell their music is absent in today’s contemporary music bands. The Silvers developed an alternate universe called Silvers Surf City, where fish and animals walked on land and talked. The videos also feature Black Bart, a pirate who is one of a trio of main villains in the show. Each episode has a dilemma, with The Silvers saving the day through the magic of music. The band has animated music videos for its songs and melodies firmly rooted in 1960s pop-rock. This series is also available on YouTube.
